With the nearly simultaneous release of Rock Band 4 and Guitar Hero Live, the music game franchise has attempted to reclaim the thrown it held in the early 2000’s. But, so far it isn’t looking too good. Compared to their presence at this years E3, the games had a relatively quiet release, which may be the reason for their modest sales.

If you’ve been dying to get your hands on the adorable Chibi-Robo amiibo, but don’t want to throw down $40 for the Zip Lash bundle, Amazon’s got your back. Starting tomorrow at 2:00 PM PT, Amazon US will be accepting pre-orders for the pint-sized robot, and they urge customers to be ready.
According to the official Reddit post, there will be a limit of two amiibo per customer, and one-click ordering will be available.

If you have any questions, you can head over the Reddit post, and ask the Amazon representative questions until 3PM PT tomorrow, but don’t wait too long!
